De­bate turns ugly, gets per­sonal

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

Healthy de­bate turned into per­sonal at­tacks be­tween coun­cil­lors at the Town of Cam­bridge coun­cil meet­ing on Tues­day, July 26.

Tem­pers flared and things got heated while dis­cussing the draft bud­get, par­tic­u­larly over Coun­cil­lor An­dres Tim­mer­ma­nis’ last-minute pro­posed changes.

A di­vide was ce­mented be­tween lead­ers Mayor Keri Shan­non and Deputy Mayor Pauline O’Con­nor.

Cr O’Con­nor let a pa­tro­n­is­ing tone slip dur­ing pro­ceed­ings when she told the Mayor to “go for it, dearie.”

Ms Shan­non re­quested the com­ment be tran­scribed to be put on the record.
